Show is upsetting local residents
MTV's latest faux-reality semi-scripted hit TV show, Maui Fever, is causing waves of anger across the island by locals who don't think the show accurately portrays life of Maui residents, the AP reports.
The show focuses on a group of good-looking Mainlanders living in Maui. The cameras capture them performing their daily routines, consisting primarily of drinking, hooking up, surfing, hooking up, and drinking while hooking up.
"I thought it was kind of insulting...they just show partying," Abcde Shibao, 16, of Lahaina said. "But (young people are) active in school, community and sports. We do other things besides partying."
Do you care if it's real as long as it's entertaining?

Blu-ray copy protection "cracked"
Original article by Jeremy Reimer
According to a post on the Doom9 forums, enigmatic hacker "muslix64" has had some initial success in bypassing the copy protection of Blu-ray discs.
Muslix64, who first came to fame for his work on the BackupHDDVD utility, posted that he was able to decrypt and play a Blu-ray media file without owning a Blu-ray player, by working on a file provided to him by another member of the forum. He claims to have used a "known plaintext attack" to find the encryption key, but did not specify any additional software he was running. The movie he decrypted was titled Lord of War, a suitable choice for the battle between copy protection and those who would defeat it.
MAN I JUST LOVE HACKERS!!! TO ME THEY ARE THE EINSTEIN OF THIS GENERATION!!

Super model Gisele blames families for Anorexia
Wednesday. 1.24.07 11:26 am
Are parents responsible for their childrenâ€™s eating disorders?
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen says weak families are to blame for anorexia -- not the fashion industry that has been widely criticized for promoting waifish silhouettes, Reuters reports.
"I never suffered from this problem (anorexia) because I had a very strong family base. Parents are responsible, not the fashion industry," she said in the Friday edition of O Globo newspaper.
Gisele, who was ranked 16 on Forbes' list of the 20 richest women in entertainment this week, said that being skinny just goes with the territory in cat-walking.
"Everybody knows that the norm in fashion is thin," said the model who is 5'11" and 125 pounds. "But excuse me, there are people born with the right genes for this profession."
I THINK A PART OF ANOREXIA IS DEPRESSION DISORDER AND THAT ALONE IS GENETIC..

I SWEAR TO GOD I AM GOING TO JUMP

I was out yesterday because I was so depressed. I was suppose to be in hawaii with my family. They called me to tell me that they missed me there and I was the only one in the family that didnt make it. I was trying to hide the fact that I was crying. So I said,
Fuck work for a day because I need to cry this one out.
I ended up working for one hour at home just so that I would not have so much work to do when I get back. I get back today and people want to know why my office hours changed. It changed becuase they fired the person that was helping me. I cannot keep those hours and do the work of two people. This place is KILLING ME!
I make sacrifices and work from home and now this. Oh it gets better! An old student worker of mine that I sold my sidekick 2 to that never paid me came in yesterday to talk to my boss complaining about the scholarship she put on the system and has not heard anything. I communicated with this person and even moved her file ahead of a pile of students in line ahead of her. She was here in front of me when I processed her file. Then she has her nerve to complain to my boss about me not processing her scholarship on time. WTF!!!
THIS PLACE IS DRVING ME TO THE EDGE!

Dakota Fanning movie controversy
Jan. 23 - Child star Dakota Fanning is at the centre of a controversy over her portrayal a girl who is raped in the film 'Hounddog'.
Child actress Dakota Fanning spoke to Reuters at the Sundance Film Festival about her role in the controversial film 'Hounddog', which features a scene in which her character is raped.
Critics have blasted the film, saying that children should not be subjected to engaging in "seamy portrayals" for commercial purposes.
ACTRESSES LIKE JODI FOSTER AND BROOKE SHIELDS PLAYED ROLES AS CHILD PROSTITUTES . bROOKE SHIELDS MOST CONTROVERSIAL MOVIE WAS "BLUE LAGOON" IF ANYONE REMEMBERS THAT ONE.

Reasons why Marijuana should be made legal
Monday. 1.22.07 5:28 pm
REASONS WHY WE SHOULD LEGALIZE MARIJUANA
# Medicinal use:
Marijuana can be used as medicine because it helps to stimulate apetite and relieve nausea in cancer and AIDS patients.
The hemp plant is a valuable natural resource. Legalizing marijuana would eliminate the confusion surrounding hemp and allow us to take advantage of hemp's agricultural and industrial uses.
# Religious Use:
Some religions instruct their followers to use marijuana. Just like Christianity and Judaism instruct their followers to drink wine on certain occaisions, some Hindus, Buddhists, Rastafarians, and members of other religions use marijuana as part of their spiritual and religious ceremonies. These people deserve the freedom to practice their religion as they see fit. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that the government cannot 'prohibit the free exercise' of religion, and so marijuana should be legal.
IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA THAN IT IS TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL. WE LEARNED THAT ONE A LONG TIME AGO WITH ALCOHOL. I DONT KNOW I CAN GO EITHER WAY ON THIS ONE. IF IT IS ILLEGAL I PAY FOR IT BY PLACING THOSE PEOPLE IN JAIL AND FEEDING THEM. AT LEAST IF THEY LEGALIZE IT, I GET A CHOICE OF PAYING FOR WEED OR NOT!!??
